LEDs have become a common-day device in many automobiles, motor coaches, motor bikes, boats, aircraft, homes, businesses, and more recently, cottages and alternative-energy friendly locations. Being able to conveniently mount the LEDs is a constant challenge which we actively search out desirable and easy-to-use solutions.

LED Modules are the latest in efficient mounting systems. Modules are compact in size, may contain several LEDs encased in a simple housing. Some models feature total dust ingress protection, other are fully weatherproof for protection from rain, snow, direct sun light and waterproof (but not submersible) and meet or exceed IP67 / IP68 specifications. Modules can be used indoors or out, the possibilities are endless.

Models includes units which are square or rectangular and encase three or four ultra-bright high efficiency LEDs. Modules may hold three, four and even nine LEDs, in colors such as White, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow or even solutions where Red, Green and Blue LEDs are mixed together to give a RGB lighting effect. We even have modules where a single LED can output three colors.

Operating voltages and currents needed for LED lighting is one of their best features. Our modules run at a convenient 12v – 15v DC and draw only a fraction of the current of typical lighting solutions such as incandescent, halogen or fluorescent tubes.

Multi-Color and RGB (Red-Green-Blue) modules are available in two styles.Sealed modules contains nine (three Red, three Green, three Blue) high-intensity Strawhat LEDs in a waterproof, flame-resistant module measuring 3.1" long x 0.7" wide x 0.4"tall (79mm long x 18mm wide x 10.3mm tall).Open modules have two high-intensity RGB SMD LEDs and measure 1.8" long x 0.5" wide x 0.14" tall (45mm long x 12mm wide x 3.5mm tall).
 
Three high-intensity Piranha LEDs in a weatherproof, waterproof, flame-resistant module. Measures 3.15" long x 0.6" wide x 0.5" tall (80mm long x 15mm wide x 12.5mm tall).

LED colors available include White, Red, Blue, Green and Yellow.

 
Four high-intensity Piranha LEDs in a weatherproof, waterproof, flame-resistant module. Measures 1.5" (38mm) square x 0.54" (14mm) tall.

LED colors available include White, Red, Blue, Green and Yellow.
